"Every age reflects its own image into its arts." Meaning, each historic time period can be characterized by the art and architecture it produced as it relates to the social and political happenings of the time. Neoclassical art often depicted classical subject material in great historical accuracy due to the revived interest in classical antiquity during the late eighteenth century. Although still influenced by the preceding art period of Rococo style, neoclassicism almost wholeheartedly centered on classic Greek and Roman values. The art was also quite rigid with limited emotion, contrasting heavily to previous art.
